The Inland Fisheries Amendment Act 2017 was enacted last year and is on the statute book having been through all relevant stages of the Oireachtas legislative process.

I am advised that Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) seeks to have positive and constructive relationships with all stakeholder groups. I would support IFI’s reasonable expectation that these relationships are based on mutual respect and courteous rather than confrontational engagement.
